Is Busan the most underrated big city on the planet? That’s a heated debate for another day, but the second-biggest city in South Korea is packed full of the sort of once-in-a-lifetime experiences and attractions that prise joyful excitement out of even the most hardened of cynical travellers. Busan is beautiful, breathtaking, bloomin’ brilliant.
Some three and a half million people are lucky enough to call Busan home, but this bustling port at the southern tip of the Korean Peninsula gracefully balances big city life with community charm. Want the bright lights of the city? Busy beaches? Some of the best restaurants in this part of the world? You’ll find all that here in spades.
But visitors looking for down to earth coffee shops, friendly markets, secret breweries, and Korean traditions? Those people will be plenty busy as well. Deciding on the best things to do in Busan will depend on what you want to do, but rest assured, you’ll have more than enough to see and do.
Spectacular seaside beaches, historic temples, vintage shopping and some of the best seafood on the planet; the San Francisco of South Korea awaits. Or maybe it’s time to start called SF the Busan of the US?
